The best Level 2 Car Polishing and Detailing

What is Two Stage Car Polishing?

Ideal for heavier defects, and soft clear coat such as flat black paint systems that require a cutting and polishing phase. The reason why we have a two stage procedure is because of marring, which is caused by friction from cutting heavy defects out from the clear coat, and therefore needs to be followed up with polish to refine the surface.

The Goals of Two Stage Paint Polishing Depend on:

Heavy defect removal aka compounding

The first stage, compounding, is commonly the much more labor intensive of the two processes because its focus is on removing the heavier and/or deeper defects. This is why pricing for a two-step paint correction is significantly higher, and takes longer to complete, than a one-step paint correction.

Refinement aka finish polishing

The Second Stage, finish polishing, refined the hard work of the compounding step. It’s the ‘rejoiceful moment’ that showcases all the surface refinement including color, gloss, and distinction of image. As a result, two step paint corrections frequently transform vehicles to look their all-time best!

Our Paint Polishing Process:

Clean Wheels, Tires, & Fenders

Detail starts with a thorough cleaning of the wheel faces, wheel barrels, tires, and inner fender liner

Gentle Foam Hand Wash

Vehicle gets a thick layer of foam and a gentle hand wash (while we clean the jambs, gas cap, and remove bugs from paint)

Chemically Remove Iron Particles

To ensure a clean surface, we remove iron particles from your paint via a chemical decontamination

Clay Bar Treatment

The next step to a clean surface is a clay bar treatment to remove any remaining embedded dirt and debris (your paint will feel really smooth).

Tape Off Sensitive Areas

To decrease polish build-up or staining, we'll tape off and protect any trim/chrome/sensitive areas

Compound Phase (Correction)

Safely remove a majority of the swirls and scratches from your paint with a machine polisher, cutting pad, and compound

Polishing Phase (Polish)

This will increase shine and clarity by polishing the micro-scratches that are leftover from the compound phase

Paint Wipe Down

To inspect true condition, we'll wipe down the paint to remove any leftover polish residue that can be hiding imperfections

Apply Paint Protection

Based on your choice of protection, we will install a ceramic coating on paint, and plastic surfaces.

Dress Tires, Plastic & Trim

To give the exterior an extra pop, most of the exterior plastic and trim will be dressed to an even black finish like the tires, fenders, and trim (it will not be greasy)

Clean Exterior Windows & Mirrors

We'll complete the detail with streak-free glass cleaning on all exterior surfaces

Final Touch Ups

We'll do a final inspection of all exterior surfaces and touch up any areas that need attention.


Based on the size, condition, and type of paint, the time it takes can greatly differ. Two same sized cars can get the same service, but one takes 8 hours while the other takes 18 hours.

If you’re in need of complete detail on the exterior and interior, a great add-on service is our Full Interior Cleaning. You’ll feel like you have a brand-new car again.

Notice: This service requires you to drop off the vehicle at our shop location.

Paint Polishing
Absolutely! We carry separate ceramic coatings for individual surfaces such as paint, plastic, windows, and wheels (at an additional price). Our shop automatically includes a one year ceramic coating to all painted surfaces.
This is an “it depends” kind of answer. After the paint is polished, it comes down to how well you maintain the vehicle afterwards. If you take it through a $5 car wash, you can easily get back to square one in a matter of weeks. If you properly wash and dry your vehicle, the results will stay for a much longer than compared to if you use a dirty towel and water to wash your vehicle.
Yes! We offer all our paint correction and ceramic coating services at our shop location. Depending on the level of work, it can take 2 to 3 days to complete the service.
Level 1 paint polishing will remove 75 to 85% of the imperfections in your paint.
Level 2 paint polishing will remove 85 to 90% of the imperfections in your paint.

For most vehicles, Level 1 will be just fine and a level 2 is for paint systems that are soft.
If it’s relatively warm outside with low humidity, your vehicle will be 85% dry by the time we’re done. If it’s cold or raining, then it’ll take longer for your interior to dry due to the climate.
